Name Brand was formed in Feb. 2000 when a group of punk kids met where they went to school, Abington High School. Name Brand consisted of Dan and Andrew Sinkler, and Chris Strosser. From then on the band practiced daily until they evenutually released their first CD. The CD was released in May 2001 and sparked the attention of many punk locals. The band started playing a lot of local shows in support of the CD... and eventually took a break because they didn't like the direction the band going in. Name Brand wanted to be something different than the typical run-of-the-mill pop punk band with a whiney singer. After that, the band started writing new material, released a "promo-type" live CD, and is about to release their third CD, entitled, "Self-Titled". Already topping MP3.com's emo and skate punk charts, the band hopes to bring a new, larger following with the release of the CD and the tour that is being planned.
